On my last visit up north, my sister and I made our way to our family cottage and spent a couple days just relaxing and doing absolutely nothing except cater to ourselves.
For breakfast, we JUST had to make a batch of bush pancakes. This recipe came from my Dad’s side and we have enjoyed these pancakes ever since we were tots. These days, we make these just out here as the batter is cooked in cast iron fry pans and in a lot of shortening resulting in a lot of smoke. These are not your typical Auntie Jem pancakes, but very tasty to us. :o)
My sister made me chuckle by showing me six different recipes for these pancakes depending on the number of people eating. If my Mom wasn’t at the cottage to make them, we kept asking her for the recipe and then storing it on one of the shelves for future use. We would forget about the recipe and then ask Mom again and again and ..... When we paint the cupboards, the recipe will be written on the inside of one of the doors so that there is a permanent record.
So serene, no city noise, no electricity …. just a plain rustic cottage. This was taken just after sunrise before heading back to daily life.
Have a great day!
